Cross Stitch Christmas Card

It's christmas eeeeeve!!!! And I'm freezing lol. So I'm sitting with 2 blankets, a nice cup of tea and a hot water bottle, aah :)

This is a card I made with a free kit I got from a cross stitch magazine.

The paper was free in a recent issue of Cardmaking and papercraft and the swirls are made with a sizzix die. The sentiment is from craftwork cards and the ribbon is from stash.
